Wedding dinner at Batu Gajah

2 weeks ago, the BDS gang went all the way South to Batu Gajah, Perak (somewhere bout one and a half hour from Taiping) twice in conjuction with Karen's wedding.

Here's yours truly with the pretty bride Karen. The red face was because of the gown, not that we were drunk, haha!

Hubby and I with the newly wed, Karen and Steven. We went on Saturday noon for her wedding reception. Aden was home with my MIL.

 Individual shots with the bride.

3 mummies and 1 mum-to-be *wink*

 The gentlemen and the newly wed

Wedding dinner was held at a multi-purpose hall in that kampung, which is kampung Chenderong. It is without air-cond but luckily it was raining earlier that day so the weather was abit cooling. Otherwise, I can't imagine how uncomfortable it is...

 The hall is quite small and packed, we waited til the 6th dish and left the place about 8pm as the bridegroom still needed to go back to his house at Taiping to attend to his relatives and friends.

The dinner started quite punctually compared to Taiping and other big cities.

First dish was the usual hot & cold combination, 七彩拼盘. Ok, quite satisfied ;)

Then the sharkfin soup (蟹王鱼翅), also satisfactory.

Roasted duck and chicken (鸳鸯琵琶). Not bad too~

Assorted greens with mushroom (好事年年), my favourite cause I like vege and all types of mushrooms.

Deep fried big head prawns (干煎生虾), the prawns are quite fresh~

Deep fried garoupa with Thai sauce (巴辣石斑), the meat is also quite fresh.

Food were served by:
Restaurant Wing Kee
177, Jln Kg Timah,
31800 Tanjung Tualang,

3 more dishes to go but we were ready to travel back Taiping already, as we needed to wake up at 6am the next morning and travel here again for the tea ceremony @.@

Lastly, a toast from the couples and family to the guests who attend

Next, the morning tea ceremony and bridegroom's wedding reception at Taiping.


  1. Free food!! hihihi. The bride looks smashing! Congratulations to her and the new husband. :p

  2. awww you all look so pretty and the food wow... congratulations to both of them :)

  3. nice bride. the shark fin , so thick. I thought people stop eating shark fin already?

  4. The food looks kind of old school - like what we used to get in our younger days. Oooo...I missed that! So nice!!!! Hmmm...maybe if I go to the smaller towns here, I may get a full-course dinner like this one too.

  5. Congrats to the newly-wed~

    You need to attend to both bride and groom events? Fuh, must be tiring! Nevertheless, it's so good to have gathering with friends.

  6. 3 mummies and 1 mom-to-be? *raise eyebrow* Hehehehe~ Double happiness and congrats once again to the couple!

  7. One more friend in your group left their bachelor life. Very soon, they will join you in parenthood. This is the cycle of life.

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
